Bishoujo Chara Poll on Amazon
Amazon JP has started up a Best of 2010 Bishoujo Character Poll featuring 49 girls from games this year. The poll runs until December 15th and you can vote once per account. I have no idea how they decided on who to include, but it seems like they’ve missed the note that two of them are actually traps. Anyways, I voted for the one and only Hawawa General, Shuri-chan.
UnisonShift’s Flyable Candy Heart is scheduled for a February 25th release! Preorders will start up December 17th!
The following titles have been delayed:
Windmill has started up a Twitter account :)
Navel’s popular 2009 title Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai is confirmed for an anime adaptation starting in April next spring! Nishimata Aoi’s artwork seems to have stayed relatively unchanged. Naru is so cute >w<b I wonder how they’re going to approach this… an omnibus format like Yosuga no Sora?
It seems that Hayate no Gotoku! will be getting a movie before a probable 3rd season. The focus should be on Athena. Recent anime adaptations include shoujo horror manga Chocola no Mahou and romance drama manga Ikoku Meiro no Croisée.
It’s been revealed that the final Oreimo episode will be a ‘good end’. So it’s not the true end? With the series being pretty popular, I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a second season. That’s a good thing since no matter how they end, I don’t think I’d be satisfied…
This is the news that I’ve been waiting for! Tenshin Ranman Happy Go Lucky! is getting an official visual fan book! It comes out on January 14th. SANA!!!!! There’s also a fanbook coming out for Emil Chronicle Online from Dengeki.
minori’s eden* is being serialized in Comic Rex… but it’s now a school love comedy: Gakuen eden*.
The limited edition of the 8th volume of Minami-ke will come with a drama CD. The cast is the same as the anime. It’s nice to hear more of the Minami sisters after 2 anime seasons.
You can listen to samples of the 33 tracks from the recently released Amagami SS original soundtrack from Pony Canyon.
Check out the OP for upcoming Nipponichi title Disgaea4. Flonne’s all grown up ;_;
As for castoff-able figures, Orchid Seed has another 1/7 scale Sonico coming out – this time bondage ver. It’s priced at 8700 yen and will be out in April. native has a 1/7 scale figure of Amatsu Misora ni!‘s Mikage out in June at 9000 yen. I like the hat and clothes. Now where’s Miyu-chan!?
ave:new project is teaming up with illustrator POP to present an original figure and CD set featuring mascot Momoe☆Paruchu. The full package via Griffon is 7350 yen, while the figure alone is 4725 yen.
CLayz – 1/6 scale Yuki (Suigetsu, May 2011, ￥8925)
FREEing – 1/4 scale Sora gym clothes ver (Yosuga no Sora, April 2011, ￥14,800)
Kotobukiya – 1/8 scale Uiharu (Railgun, April 2011, ￥6300)
PLUM – 1/6 scale Nymph (SoraOto f, this winter)
This is so silly that it warrants mention. Gravity and GungHo are once again teaming up with SK imedia to create a shooting MMO Toy Wars. That’s right, you heard me. Basically you play as figures (figmas, I guess?) and blasting other figures. Let the games begin early 2011.
Kuroneko vs Shironeko. The birds are like Zen – total assholes.
The parcel restrictions from Japan Post that I mentioned two weeks ago have now been relaxed. Now heavier shipments will be subjected to greater scrutiny, but they should go through fine. Thanks to lightl for the info.
My Kirino-chwan has arrived with the latest issue of Dengeki G’s! I did a quick flip through and noticed a 2-page spread about CIRCUS’ upcoming D.C. III. Who’s this girl that looks like Nemu and Yume? I like the new setting and uniforms.
No webclaps this week. We’re still working on the December post. It’ll be up sometime next week.
